Legal Answers
Q. Is a hand written receipt legally binding on the sale of a house
A: It may be enforceable as a contract for sale. It in not effective to transfer title unless it meets the requirements for a deed. It may be enough to defend against an eviction in court. I don't know how to answer the question whether it is "enough to stop her from kicking (you) out." It depends upon what you mean by "stop" and "kicking you out". You should consult with an attorney.
Q. I cancelled my purchase agreement...Seller will not sign release
A: The answer depends upon whether your realtor is correct is his or her assessment of the issue whether you were within your rights when you claimed to cancel the agreement. You have not provided enough information to permit an assessment of that issue.
Q. Mom decided to add my name to the deed found out she added my sons name on it so now i need to no which deed is real
A: By real, you must mean effective. Find out which deed was recorded with the register of deeds. That will provide a partial answer, but we need more information in order to determine the state of title to the property.
